A few Christians were arrested in Dearborn, Michigan for speaking to people at the Arab Festival. The city officials of Dearborn made a series of claims about the actions of the Christians, but the videos below show these claims untrue, and the city of Dearborn is looking worse and worse. The published police reports and statements from the Mayor can be compared to the several video accounts of the event, which I have posted below. Based on this comparison, the only conclusion I can come to is that the police and Mayor of Dearborn are less than truthful. Further, I can only conclude that the Muslim population of Dearborn has put enough influence on the city officials so that they have violated the constitution. Fortunately one state representative from Michigan is asking the state attorney general to investigate the problem.
The videos below show that Christians were arrested for merely speaking to people. From being in the apologetics field, I can tell you that Christians being at the festival and being silent about the truth of Islam is not threatening, and will get no one arrested. But the Muslim community will have a raw nerve exposed when they see someone who has left Islam come to the festival and talk about Muhammad being a false prophet. All the evidence shows that the Christians were arrested for what they were saying, not how they were acting, or the way they were saying it. Someone high in authority in Dearborn influenced the police officers to do something that violates the law. If these Christians had not had several video cameras, they would have had no defense against the false accusations against them by the city of Dearborn.
The fear is that if this can happen in one city, then the same Muslim attitude can squelch the freedoms anywhere in the US, including at the national level. The bias has already happened in Dearborn: Muslims have influenced city officials to violate people’s rights, and many churches have fallen in line and been silent because they don’t want controversy.
